Zipp SLC2 handlebar

Our review

A deep drop and light weight make this the racer’s choice
Skip to view product specifications

The SLC2 was designed for racers seeking a stiff and lightweight bar, and that’s what it delivers. By extending the oversize clamp area into the tops, Zipp have shaved excess material while maintaining stiffness.


The deep 160mm drop is comfy to hold, and helps you get down low for speed and sure-footed cornering. Isolation from road buzz is also fairly good.

Bigger hits aren’t softened as much as they are with some other carbon bars, though, due to the SLC2’s high level of stiffness.


It’s an ideal bar for stronger riders who want weight savings with minimal stiffness sacrifices.
